You're going to love this Skillet Cornbread Recipe that's slightly sweet & savory, with a crunchy, buttery crust, from baking it in a cast iron skillet.
Preheat oven to 425 degrees F (220 degrees C). Place 9-inch cast-iron skillet in oven to warm it up while the oven is preheating.
In a small mixing bowl add the milk and cornmeal, mix together and let sit for 10 minutes.
Sift flour, baking powder, and salt together in a mixing bowl. Beat cornmeal mixture, eggs, and butter into the flour mixture until you have a smooth batter, about 1 minute.
Use cooking oil spray, coat the hot skillet before pouring in the batter.
Pour batter into the skillet.
Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean, 18 to 23 minutes. Cut into wedges to serve.
